Firsts

Jackson has had a week of first- his first Primary Program, first school field trip, & first school party.

I got to go along with him on his class trip to Zittels where the farmer's wife, Mrs. Zittle took us on a tour and taught us about vegetables and bees and animals...
It was SO COLD that day, but we managed to have lots of fun.
He actually got brave enough to pet the calf.
He wasn't comfortable turning his back on these sleeping pigs.
This is as close as he would get to the bunny!
He enjoyed the hay maze- more so the second time through when he had figured out exactly what he was supposed to be doing in there.
At the end he got to pick out a pie pumpkin, make a craft (popcorn filled clear glove with candy corns in the finger tips for 'nails'), AND we got to eat popcorn and drink cider. We had a good time together!



Jackson had his Halloween Party at school today. I didn't get to attend- actually I can't go to any of the kids parties this year for pictures. I guess the teachers aren't interested in parents hanging out. Boo! :(
Anyhow, getting Jackson ready this morning was fun. He just giggled with delight to see himself dressed up as a BYU football player. He was excited to show his"friends" at school since no one was at home to see him. He really wanted to show Daddy right away. He just LOVES BYU Football... talks about it daily. Last night we heard him coughing, waking up, saying, "BYU!" and then that was it. He fell back asleep. This evening he made up his own little song about BYU. I'll have to see if he remembers it tomorrow so I can record it.
Here he at school today...
Some pictures through the window...
He loves to twist his tongue around lately.

Class is over- my happy BYU Jack Jack!
Off to get prepared for Trick or Treating tomorrow! Pictures coming soon. :)

Holy Pumpkin! That's huge.

Glad to hear it was so much fun for Jackson. It's fun to do '1sts'.

Go Cougars!

How funny that he said B.Y.U. in his sleep. That's a sure sign of a future cougar in my opinion. Better start getting him prepped for admission!

YEA Jackson! Come out and see another BYU game! Cosmo was at the Omniture Halloween party. I thought of Jackson and Kobe! We weren't able to get down and see him before he left though.. I won earrings for answering a trivia question about BYU football though! :) They didn't expect girls to be able to name coaches on the BYU staff. Boo that you couldn't go to his halloween party!
